THE REALITY OF FAITH, FEAR AND FAILURE!

Faith is not a non-stop flight above reality; its a real engaging fight. What really distinguishes people of faith is not how they have big faith or how rarely they hit the ground down with defeat, but how often they get up again after failure.

To be perpetually positive is impossible. The mere attempt of faith embroils us in prayer battles and Abrahamic effort. The enemy often flees to his corner, only to prepare for the next round.

You might even have climbed out of the ring, but the reward for just getting back in exceeds anything anyone could offer.

Among the lessons to be learnt through Abraham becoming a father is not that we should do nothing and leave it all to God.

Had this been Abrahams
attitude, the miracle would never have happened. The key lay not in doing nothing, but in doing the right thing again and again – trying yet again to fill a barren womb.

We can be so paranoid about conceiving an Ishmael, that we fail to produce an Isaac. Not trying to get a child through Sarah would have been much lack of faith as using her maidโ€ฆ

Faith is leaving the security of inactivity and deliberately exposing ourselves to the painful possibility of defeat. That is why I keep on trying things again and again and again andโ€ฆ.again even with the fear of always failing hanging on my head !

More precious than gold
Lord, increase our faith, pleaded the disciples. If you have faith the size of a mustard seed . . . came the reply. (Luke 17:5-6)

Perhaps our greatest need is not huge faith, but to fully use our small faith. Perhaps we miss out because we devalue our faith, not using it to the fullest because we wrongly imagine that tiny faith is too insignificant to move the hand of God.

If faith is more valuable than gold (1 Peter 1:7), the tiniest speck of it is too precious to despise. We should not let feelings of inadequacy strangle our faith. Let’s just keep pressing on.

Past great achievers achieved much with floundering faith that was always put into into action. So can we.

Let’s all fight the good fight of faith this day and this season ! Rise up again and make use of your ” little ” faithโ€ฆYes, even with the fear of possibility of “another” failureโ€ฆmake use of your little or weak faith againโ€ฆ

Pursue that project again, start that business again, work on that troublesome marriage again, reach out again, engage again, pursue more. Like Abraham, try to do the right stuff again, try to fill the empty womb again and againโ€ฆActivate your faith!

Off we go!โ€ฆ

Have a good day !

Amen!

  1. “So Jesus said to them, โ€œBecause of your unbelief; for assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, โ€˜Move from here to there,โ€™ and it will move, and nothing will be impossible for you.” – Matthew 17:20 NKJV

  2. You are right. It’s not about having little faith or big faith. Faith is faith. It’s about having faith that doesn’t quit being faith, faith that keeps its eyes on the author and finisher of our faith. What we need is persevering faith in our God not our faith. Good post. Keep on keeping on. God bless.
